The redevelopment of the Portal was foreseen under the renewed framework for cooperation in the youth field.

In the meantime two separate complaints containing allegations of irregularities in the handling of the procurement procedure have been submitted also to the Commission by competing bidders in the tender. These complaints will be duly examined by the Commission while taking full account of the outcome of the court procedure at national level.

The judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union of 2009 left open the possibility of a limited spring hunting derogation of Turtle Dove and Quail under strictly supervised conditions in view of the specific circumstances prevalent in Malta. Malta has over the past few years strengthened and improved the national regulatory framework relating to the spring hunting derogation. The relevant national regulations introduce a number of controls in relation to a spring hunting season, including bag limits and quotas, restrictions pertaining to time and places and a range of reporting requirements. Nevertheless, the Commission is aware of concerns relating to the enforcement of spring hunting regulations, and therefore it is in regular contact with the Maltese authorities with a view to identifying further steps to improve effectiveness of the enforcement regime. Following the Spring European Council’s call for concrete proposals by October 2013, the Commission carried out consultations with parties concerned before the adoption of its proposal concerning the European single market for electronic communications to achieve a Connected Continent. In accordance with Article 11 of the EU Treaty, the Commission is required to carry out broad consultations with parties concerned ‘in order to ensure that the Union’s actions are coherent and transparent’. On 11 September 2013 the Commission adopted a proposal for a regulation laying down measures concerning the European single market for electronic communications and to achieve a Connected Continent (COM 627).
